Stem Cells. This is a quack cure that is not talked about as much as it should be. Stem cell therapy and research only valid for the treatments of blood and bone marrow cancer. That is it. But the quack peddlers are pushing it for autism. Yes you read this right.
While hiking with my dog today, I was sent this:
You read this right. This parent is taking their child to Panama and subjection their child to stem cell therapy to try to cure autism. This is very dangerous.
Read the FDA Warning:
"Safety Concerns for Unproven Stem Cell Treatments
All medical treatments have benefits and risks. But unproven stem cell therapies can be particularly unsafe.
For instance, attendees at a 2016 FDA public workshop discussed several cases of severe adverse events. One patient became blind due to an injection of stem cells into the eye. Another patient received a spinal cord injection that caused the growth of a spinal tumor.
Other potential safety concerns for unproven treatments include:
Administration site reactions,
The ability of cells to move from placement sites and change into inappropriate cell types or multiply,
Failure of cells to work as expected, and
The growth of tumors.
Note: Even if stem cells are your own cells, there are still safety risks such as those noted above. In addition, if cells are manipulated after removal, there is a risk of contamination of the cells."
Heed the FDA's Warning. This child is in extreme danger and the parents are too blind to see it. The largest autism charity is promoting her experimenting on her child instead of helping him and accepting him.
